What Do You Most Need to Clean and Clear?

There’s a major impetus amongst my clients right now to clean and clear things (and people) out of their lives. Normally I’d be an encourager – nay prime mover – of that sort of activity, but this October they seem to be doing it spontaneously. Wonder why that is? Something in the stars, perhaps? There comes a time in everyone’s life when we feel ready to move forward and somehow this cleaning and clearing is part of the preparation. We need to move stuff out of the way, to create space for the new. It’s deceptively therapeutic too. When you […]

Clutter Clearing Creates Clarity and Creativity

Despite being a business mentor and wealth coach, one of the greatest differences I know I’ve made to clients over the years is in encouraging them to clear their clutter. And I’m perfect for this because I live such a minimalist and clutter-free life. That comes from the military discipline in my childhood you see, and travelling a lot and moving house all the time. In fact, sometimes I wonder what I have spent all my money on over the years I’ve worked, must be millions now, because it certainly isn’t visible round here. During the summer my niece was […]

Simplifying & Downshifting: An Update

I am re-reading Simplicity: Easy Ways to Simplify And Enrich Your Life by Elaine St James.   I had to buy another (second hand) copy since, on lending my own copy to a colleague, I remembered how good it is (!) and I thought I would revisit it.

August is Extreme Self-Care Month

Regular readers will know I always have August off in the UK.   And I use it for zapping tolerations.   I notice from a blog post from mid July last year, that my holiday To Do List had 21 items on it.   This year’s is somewhat shorter which is gratifying in itself. I wonder if there’s a direct correlation between how stressed one is and how long one’s To Do List?   Discuss. I’ve stolen a march on August this year and started to zap tolerations during July – ha ha!   I’ve already booked my annual oven clean and replaced the oven […]

Entrepreneurs: Every Day is Blissful and Unique

Another wonderful, unique day in the life of an Everyday Entrepreneur. The weather conditions today were blissful for working in the Abundance Shed – sunny and yet breezy. I found myself reflecting often throughout the day and even exclaiming out loud or really seriously delving into the concept and feelings of how lucky I am to work at home, al fresco. Today was a day of two halves.   It began and ended with coaching – Antonietta, Ntathu, Andre & Mary Ann, one of whom was a no-show so I kept on working anyway. The other half of the day – […]
